Snow Handers with Vincent Tupin
@LiquidSpin: Yep, Grip studs screw in- sort of like an auger. I agree with you- I don't see how they would need to be bedded in. Thanks for clarifying!

Snow Handers with Vincent Tupin
@LiquidSpin: Thanks for the advice. I did that with my Schwalbe tires as recommended- I remember having difficulty finding bare pavement! Does the same sort of advice hold true for Grip Studs? I wasn't aware that they needed to be bedded in.

Snow Handers with Vincent Tupin
@LiquidSpin: I agree completely. Last season I ran kold kutter studs, which are unbelievable on pure ice. They dull quickly on pavement or rock though- just like screws do. The grip studs are carbide tipped and the company says that you can take them out of one tires and use them on another set. I'm stoked on them so far- the cost was intimidating but I picked some up used that convinced me in a heartbeat. I order a package of new studs to finish my tires after my first ride. Each takes about 30 seconds to install by hand and even the used ones offer great grip. Not cheap, but highly recommended.

@koalaplow: ISP's are ok if you're on pure snow and ice. On rock though, I found them to feel sketchy. Switched to a different setup this year and put grip studs into my own tires- I didn't stud every knob though. Feels like the best of both worlds to me- the work well on rock, dirt, and snow/ice. The downside is the cost and time.

The 2017 Pinkbike Festive Gift Guide
@cunning-linguist: That's too bad that you didn't find the link I shared worthwhile. I thought that her discussion of the Pinarello ad campaign would be relevant to this conversation. I didn't mean to imply that her views were middle ground, just wanted to demonstrate that women in cycling generally have a tough time of it. As for being offended, I'm not. I just suspect the adolescent humour that peppers these comment boards is pretty off-putting to people, and I call it like I see it. I've said my piece and way more than I originally intended to, so I'm off to groom my man bun and oil my beard. Priorities!

The 2017 Pinkbike Festive Gift Guide
@XCMark: I appreciate you taking the time to wade in and share your views, especially since my comment has been suppressed sufficiently that it's below the threshold for being seen without taking the time to click on it. I think I've elaborated more than enough on my motives for questioning what was originally written, but I'll take a minute to respond to some of your other points. I'm surprised to hear you describe my views as propaganda. I base my comments based on my real life experiences. Not projecting anything but things that people have told me in conversation about their experiences in mountain biking. That's it, end of story. You may not have had the same experiences that I have, but that doesn't mean I'm projecting jack shit. I'm stoked to hear that the people you know in the sport are treated as equals. You didn't explicitly state as to whether or not this includes women- does it? Have you asked many women if they feel like they're treated as equals? In my experience that hasn't always been true, but I'm thrilled to hear that things are changing (if that's what you're saying). And lest you think that I'm alone in thinking there is a problem, take a minute to read about the perspectives of someone who has experienced it firsthand: Amanda Batty... http://blog.amandabatty.com/ Thoughts?
